Thanks to Chris Ladner for this show.
add to lineage: >MKWact>DART Pro98>EAC WAV Processor>MKWact
Most tracks were edited to eliminate between songs chatter and
tuning using DART Pro98 and then trimmed to correct CD sector
size with EAC's WAV Processor. The intro on d1t1 was trimmed
and the level raised to match the band's level.
All files were normalized to 98% and corrected for DC offset
with EAC's WAV Processor and then checked for noise with
DART Pro 98.
Noise was removed with DART Pro98's retouch tool if possible.
1. removed a bit of noise from d1t01 (left channel) at 1:50.224
2. reconstructed audio to fill a gap in d1t01 at 3:46.375 to 3:46.395
3. removed click from d1t02 at 0:0.014
4. removed click from d1t06 (left channel) at 0:31.790
5. removed noise from d2t01 at 3:40.580 to 3:40.605
6. removed noise from d2t02 at 0:9.295 to 0:9.306
7. removed click from d2t05 at 1:21.306
8. reconstructed audio to fill a gap in d2t05 at 4:47.551 to 4:47.725
9. removed gap (reel flip?) in d2t09 at 11:07.889 to 11:08.961
(original timing) and blended the transition.
10. removed gap (reel flip?) in d3t08 at 1:01.560 and blended the transition.

You can't win, for losing..
This is almost a backward show in that they save the more acoustic type tunes for the end of the show but do them electric anyway.
I don't want to be dogmatic about this but I think this might be the only electric SEASONS?
That whole Alligator thru Caution is pretty cool indeed.
I am listening to this somewhat out of order but I would be hard pressed not to consider this a pretty sweet recording of the Dead in a major transition period.
Yummy HIGH TIME! Jerry's vocals so cool.
BBPETE-When they brought this back in the 80's they did a real snappy version but you can't bring back Pigpen.
Big Boy reminds me a little of Hog For You in melody.
Weir and Pig singing together on NFA, I guess it is Pig shadowing Bobby but PIG is like a magnet steering Bob.
They jam hard on the N.F.A pretty cool how they can switch gears so quickly and without missing a beat.
The pace of NOT FADE is approaching meltdown..
If you get MERRY GO ROUND you get the Dead.
and yes that was a Dark Star tease..
Seasons is a powerful tune. Weir is strong on those vocals.. I know there are a few more versions of this in early 1970 I am pretty sure this is also the best sound quality I have heard for this tune.
A great tune to play in Boston for New Years!
"As it is in nature's plan
No season gets the upper hand
How I tried to bear this fact in mind
The trees are bare, the cold winds blow
But by experience we should know
Winter comes but the spring is close behind"
Bobby gets another number--Race is On..
One of the only ways to catch this song in the later years was if the band played on Kentucky Derby Day.
Not sure this would be my pick for New Years?
Silver Threads- I walked around Queens College singing this tune a lot. Got lucky a few times!!!
This had to be a challenge to play these somewhat acoustic tunes in full on electric mode.
Weir is definitely picking the tunes--"Wanna do Slewfoot?"
So that is the end of the acoustic type stuff and Bob closes us with Dancin' in the Street.
If you listen the band is clicking nicely on all cylinders
Oh my that crowd seriously has the JONES for more.
I was too- so I listened to the 1st set and then went back for the Alligator thru The 11 just one more time--Yeah!!!
Sounds like Phil is playing cello during Caution.
